I suggest that with Amendment No. 14 the Committee might discuss Amendment No. 15, in line 22, at end insert: except in the case of persons on the disabled persons' employment register", Amendment No. 16, in page 23, leave out lines 23 to 25; and Amendment No. 17, in line 25, at end insert: (c) he has been in receipt of sickness or unemployment benefit for a continuous period of not less than six months. I understand that it might be desired to hale a Division on Amendment. No. 15 as well as on Amendment No. 14. I merely point out to the Committee that in view of the time and the general desire to obtain the Third Reading of the Bill today a second Division might prejudice the Third Reading.
